Of course. Any other outcome would have been “Islamophobic,” and “Islamophobia” is the one misdeed that shattered, staggering, dhimmi Britain is determined to avoid.
“Married Pakistani doctor, 44, who molested student nurse, 21, then blamed it on ‘different cultural norms’ in the UK gets to keep his job,” by Amie Gordon, Mailonline, November 22, 2017 (thanks to Inexion):
A Pakistani doctor who molested a student nurse on a hospital ward is to keep his job after blaming the incident on ‘cultural norms’ in the UK.
Married locum doctor Imran Qureshi, 44, grabbed the breast of the 21-year-old and told her he wanted an affair as he considered her ‘sexually available’ because she’d had previous boyfriends.
The student nurse said she was ‘shaken up and distraught’ and told a tribunal the incident affected her studies and left her unable to trust male colleagues.
The woman, referred to as Miss A, said Qureshi – who was working as a locum senior house officer – grabbed her chest for two seconds before trying to ‘make light’ of it then becoming aggressive.
Qureshi admitted he made a misjudgement but said ‘cultural norms’ were different in the UK to his native Pakistan and he failed to spot a ‘red light’ warning him to make no advances towards the victim.
In June 2016 the father-of-two was ordered to sign the Sex Offender Register for five years after he was convicted of sexual assault by a jury.
He was also sentenced to a 12-month community order and subsequently lost appeals against his conviction.
But at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Manchester this week he escaped with a 12 month suspension after he offered a ‘since deep hearted apology’ to Miss A and insisted it was a ‘moment of madness and short, brief touching.’
He has since attended a course on maintaining professional boundaries and his position as a doctor will be reviewed next year.
Panel chairman Nicholas Flanagan told the doctor: ‘The Tribunal concluded you showed a lack of empathy towards Miss A and ignored her objections to your behaviour.
‘Given the length of time you had been in the United Kingdom and the fact you were fully aware of the differences in culture because of your experiences with your wife, you should have recognised Ms A’s reluctance in light of your shared cultural understanding.
‘The Tribunal concluded there is a low but nevertheless not insignificant risk of harm to another individual by a repetition of your behaviour.’
But the tribunal said erasing Qureshi’s name from the Medical Register would be disproportionate, punitive and not in the public interest….
